Brain Tissue Donation Program

Patients of the UT Southwestern Neurology Clinic – Memory may want to consider donating brain tissue after their death. Research using brain tissue can promote discoveries into treatments for Alzheimer's disease.

In addition, a diagnosis of Alzheimer's or other dementia can only be made through brain autopsy and the results of the autopsy will be made available to family members. Please review the following documents to help you decide if making a donation is right for you and your family.
